MK’s Loaded Breakfast Biscuit Pizza

November 16, 2015

Kevin LOVES this breakfast pizza!  He nearly ate the whole pizza in one setting! Thanks, Matthew, for cooking this one with Kevin!  Thanks, Kickstarter Backers, for supporting this recipe of “Breakfast Biscuit Pizza” from Cuisine at Home 2010.

Ingredients:

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. table salt

1/2 stick cold unsalted butter, cubed

1/2 c. buttermilk

4 oz. breakfast port sausage

2 strips thick-sliced bacon, diced

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 c. milk

Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 c. diced onion

1 c. fresh spinach

1 Roma tomato, diced

2 eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Whisk together 1 c. flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt for the crust in a bowl.  Cut butter into dry ingredients with a pastry blender until butter pieces are the size of peas.  Stir in buttermilk until all ingredients are moistened.  Dampen your fingers so they don’t stick to the dough, then pat crust into the bottom and partially up the sides of two 5-inch cast iron skillets.  Bake crusts 10-12 minutes.  Using the back of a spoon, press an indentation in the center of the biscuit crusts to hold gravy and other toppings, leaving 1/2 inch border of crust.  Meanwhile, brown sausage and bacon in a small skillet over medium heat until bacon is crisp.  Using a slotted spoon, remove sausage and bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate.  Drain all but 2 tbsp drippings from the skillet.  Whisk 2 tbsp. flour for the gravy into drippings in the skillet.  Once flour is incorporated, whisk in milk,.  Cook, whisking to avoid scorching until gravy boils and thickens, about 5 minutes.  Continue whisking; cook gravy about 2 minutes more to eliminate flour taste.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon gravy into each pizza well, diving evenly between the two pizzas.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium low heat.  Add onion; sweat until softened, 5 minutes.  Stir in spinach; cook until spinach begins to wilt.  Sprinkle sausage and bacon over gravy on pizzas, then top with the onion-spinach mixture and tomato.  Make a 3 inch wide well in the topping on each pizza.  Crack 1 egg into each well.  Return pizzas to the oven; bake until the whites of eggs are set, about 15-18 minutes.  Remove pizzas from the oven; serve immediately.
